Learn of pet microchips

The Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home is inviting pet owners to learn more about microchipping at their stand at the LovePets show at Ingliston this weekend.

The Home is offering special event microchip vouchers which are valid until December 2012.

David Ewing, general manager of the Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home commented: “Visitors to the event will see how the microchip is just the size of a grain of rice. It’s implanted under the loose skin on the back of the animal’s neck and the procedure is rather like a human having an ear pierced.”
